With Duke Energy’s continued efforts of upgrading obsolete plant systems, in 2019, Kinemetrics, Inc. was awarded a contract to replace the original Kinemetrics’ SMA-3 Seismic Monitoring System in service at HNP since 1987!

The USArray / TA was designed to operate in real-time with maximum reliability and data availability. Configuration of each remote USArray / TA station consists of a broadband seismometer (the majority of seismometers in USArray / TA are the STS-2.5), the Q330 data acquisition, the EpiSensor accelerometer, two barometers, an infrasound sensor, a temperature sensor and VIE unit (Intelligent power management and communication device).
